About Us

Winona State University is dedicated to promoting a culture of success, and resilience is crucial for success in higher education and in life. Resilience is the ability to adapt and grow in the face of adversity and daily challenges, and it is related to many positive outcomes including academic and personal achievement.

The pursuit of this common goal of success has fueled the creation of an inter-disciplinary Resilience Working Group at WSU. This group is comprised of faculty, staff and students all committed to promoting a culture of resilience for the betterment and success of all.

This working group aims to highlight existing resources and create new and innovative opportunities to foster resilience and demonstrate how the ability to successfully adapt to stressors can benefit each of us individually and collectively.
